The Five Elements: Mapping Emotional Intelligence
Saturday, October 22, 2016
1 - 5 pm
Drawing on both Daoist and Buddhist traditions, this seminar looked at how the five elements describe reality within the context of human experience. The particular focus was emotion as we both develop healthy ego and transcend the confines of egoic reality. The Daoist five element tradition, from which Chinese medicine arises, brings sophistication to our understanding of ego. The Tibetan Buddhist five element tradition reveals the inherent relationships between energy, emotion, and wisdom.
Bio: I had the privilege of studying five element acupuncture with JR and Judy Worsley in the late 80s and early 90s. Inspired by both the notion of essential nature and constitution, I have practiced five element acupuncture for 25 years, working and studying with many other teachers through the years. I have also been a student and practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism for 20 years. Somatic meditation and healing are a central tenant of my work. I am in the process of writing a book on the five elements as a means of understanding and mapping emotional intelligence.

VT Cancer Fair
Saturday April 2, 2016
The VTAA hosted a booth at the Vermont Cancer Fair Saturday April 2nd, 2016 in Montpelier at the Vermont College of Fine Arts.
This was a wonderful opportunity for members to advocate and promote our profession to persons with cancer and those supporting someone with a cancer diagnosis. VTAA practitioners gave treatments throughout the day while those at the booth had lots of time to talk about acupuncture's role in supporting those who have cancer and to network with other providers and organizations.
